In this exquisite cabaret of the senses, a diva melts into a rope, balloons and bubble wrap discover their artistic souls while bodies twist and fly. Seven performers of unbelievable ability bend the very fabric of reality.
Sexy, funny and explosive, Circa returns with a breathless cocktail of new circus, cabaret and vaudeville, Wunderkammer. Control and abandon, skill and humour, lyricism and anarchy all meld into a sinuous fugue of profound beauty.
Circa is world-renowned for creating starling new ways to experience circus. Combining seemingly impossible physical feats with a poetic sensibility, its creations move, amaze and astonish.
Circa’s current touring shows span diverse contexts from works for families in traditional arts centres to European contemporary arts festivals. Its works are highly innovative genre‐bending pieces that stretch the practice and perceptions of circus. Circa features a full time ensemble, a concentrated administrative team and a dedicated circus studio. Circa’s touring program in 2012 reached over 145,000 audience members locally, nationally and internationally.
Circa have reinvented circus the way Cirque du Soleil did decades ago before they became predictable-but the young company is way cooler.
“White-hot, funny and sexy, these are super-human acrobats masquerading as mere mortals. They raise the bar of what is possible, giving British contemporary circus a real target.
